Dr. Helmut Marko has ‘revealed’ that a new driver will soon be appointed for a Formula 1 seat. After qualifying at Imola, the Red Bull CEO hinted that in all likelihood there will be no room left for Daniil Kvyat in 2021.
Where most people mainly look at Alexander Albon’s situation at Red Bull Racing, there is still a very shaky position within the Austrian family. Kvyat is also on the kick chair. The Russian driver had long feared for his seat at AlphaTauri, but after the words of Marko, which he spoke after qualifying in Imola, the end seems really near. Marko has confirmed that Kvyat will have to leave the ship after this season. He will leave the Red Bull family and will be succeeded by a “very young driver.”
In addition to Nico Hülkenberg and Sergio Pérez, Pierre Gasly was also regularly mentioned as the new teammate of Max Verstappen. However, the Frenchman will just stay with AlphaTauri, Marko now says. “Gasly is driving great this year. He will not be driving at Red Bull next year, because AlphaTauri needs him as team leader,” the man from Graz said in conversation with Sky Germany. “There will be a very young driver next to him next year.” With these words, Marko seems to be finalizing an exit from Kvyat.

But who will take over the Russian’s seat then? It has long been suggested that Yuki Tsunoda is in the picture in front of a seat. When asked whether the Japanese will be appointed as Kvyat’s successor, Marko replies, “You could look at it that way.” The impending exit of Honda from Formula 1 may therefore not change the chances of Tsunoda, who is seen by Red Bull as a great promise for the future.
These were the details of the news Marko ‘reveals’ the AlphaTauri seat: “You could look at it like... for this day. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
